Should I (And how do I) Overclock my AMD FX 6300?
May 5, 2013, 3:32 AM
I just completed my first custom build recently and was considering overclocking my system but I am not sure it is worth it or viable.
My system is as follows:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
CPU: AMD FX-6300
Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
RAM: 8 GB Ballstix
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 630
It's not much, but it was affordable and runs what i need it to.
If someone could give me instructions on HOW to overclock i would appreciate it, and if my build isn't viable then that's fine, just let me know.

With the gt630 you probably wont gain a great deal by o/c. If you want to check out settings others have used, try
Just take small steps, run monitoring software to keep an eye on temps, and do stability testing.
